Hi Zapier community, 

I have seen people claiming that you can use Zapier Webhook to automatically post new items of a RSS feed to a Mastodon account.

Would anyone know the exact steps? I already have an access token etc. but not sure how to populate the fields in Zapier Webhook. I can retrieve title, teaser, image url, article url and keywords. The latter I will “translate” into hashtags, and I already know how to achieve this part.

Many thanks in advance

Add the necessary information (url is https://zapier.com), then uncheck all the boxes already checked, and check write:statuses to publish statuses on Mastodon.

 

Then create the Webhook in your Zap, with:

Test and go live :)

FYI, this additional article helped me to actually get it working!

 

Seba, if you get this working would you be able to share the details here. Would love to be able to do this.

Thank you very much, that is very helpful.
